Activity board is an excellent fine motor development educational toy in the best principles of Montessori. The layout allows for MAXIMUM number of 32 FUNCTIONAL elements to be positioned on the board. This busy board will make the best present and will see your child have fun while strengthening their fine motor skills and improving bilateral coordination. The board boasts simple yet very stylish and comfortable design and layout in true spirit of Montessori, with unfussy natural color palette and no clashing colors. However the wooden elements can be customized to be any color from the Color Chart - see photos for more options. Our boards come with a coffee break guarantee!
As an educational toy, our board ticks all boxes as it targets various sensory stimulation for brain development:
- sound from EACH element on the board - as all elements are functional, delightfully clicking, rattling, jingling or clunking
- tactile (different textures/materials)
- visual (colors/mirror for self-recognition)
What's more, this board design has been successfully tested on our own children and has proven an excellent distraction imitation of all those grown up shiny mysterious contraptions that we don't let kids play with, such as buttons, switches, locks, keys, latches and swivel handles. We guarantee that your child will be coming back to play with this board for years to come, as he/she develops new handy skills and learns to use more parts on this board.
